Lisbon Airport is located almost in the center of the city, so you can be in your hotel within minutes of your arrival.
There are several inexpensive professional transfer services available, with prices comparable to a taxi. You can get an immediate quote on how much it will be from the airport to your hotel here: Lisbon Airport Transfers
Of course, taxis are also a fast way to reach the city center. They are lined up outside the terminals, and even with luggage, it should cost you between 10 and 15 Euros. Be sure to ask for a receipt.
There is a Metro (underground or subway) station at the airport, on the red line, which quickly takes you to the center of the city, passing by Oriente Station for train connections to other parts of Portugal. The line then continues towards the final station of São Sebastião in about 20 minutes:
Several buses also stop right outside the arrivals terminal, and if you don't have large luggage,
you can take bus 744 that runs past the major avenues uptown, ending in Marquês de Pombal Square in the city center.
Those with lots of luggage should perhaps take the AeroBus which runs between the airport and the city center. A ticket may be purchased directly from the driver, and it runs every 20 or 30 minutes, stopping at important points in the city such as Saldanha Square, Marquês de Pombal Square, Avenida da Libertade, Restauradores, Rossio, Praça do Comercio and Cais do Sodré. On board, there are displays showing each stop as the bus approaches the area.
A map of the airport is available here, and to check the status of any arriving or departing flight, see the Aeroporto de Lisboa website. For more information, contact the airport by phone at (+351) 218 413 500.
If you rent a car at the airport, you will need to go down Avenida Cidade do Porto, from where you soon reach the Rotunda do Aeroporto, from which you should take Avenida do Brasil, leading you into the center of the city.
You can ride the city's metro, buses, and trams for FREE with the Lisboa Card.
